The coolest thing about this card (to me) was stamping that sentiment inside the house at the last-minute and also finding a use for that scrap of Mylar I came across looking for papers for an unrelated project. Think of all the treasures that could be hiding in the nooks and crannies of your crafty storage. When I was little my mom use to tell us to clean our closet if we wanted a new toy because we would find something we forgot about (and we always did!) and it would be just like a new present! The best thing about these new old treasures is that they are like new goodies that are already bought and paid for so we can enjoy them without guilt. Have fun shopping your stash and til next time happy crafting!

I Love those Candy Colored Pages!

Hi Friends! I love it when my kids make gingerbread houses. I love the creativity they have when decorating them. This year for the first time the kids were able to assemble the houses too! I thought they might be too old for this craft but they said “No way!” they still wanted to make them and of course they each had to have their own!


I was inspired to scrapbook these picture right away because of the brand new die cut adhesive ribbon I received from Offray. This product will be available soon in stores and on their website but you get a sneak peek of it in today’s video!

The self adhesive ribbon was so easy to work with and really flat which is nice for scrapbookers who do not want a lot of bulk in their albums and card makers who do not want to pay extra postage for lumpy items. I love to use traditional ribbon too so I used some narrow grosgrain  because it adds a great texture without fraying:
